Abstract (en)

Vibrations of the stylus (4) of a measuring probe (1) mounted on a machine, and which are transmitted to the probe stylus via the machine quill and probe body, are reduced or eliminated by a vibration damping means positioned within a cavity of the stylus. Fig 2 illustrates a first embodiment in which the vibration damping means is a unconstrained rubber cylinder (16), in a hollow cartridge (12) connected to the stylus at its tip. Alternatively a dynamic vibration absorber can be used. <IMAGE>
